Wildarts Afterschool begins on September 7, 2023, and ends on June 26, 2024, in the current school year. We operate Monday through Friday from 2:50 PM to 6 PM on days when school is in session except Early Dismissal Days.
Each afterschool day begins at 2:50 PM with a hot meal and play time, followed by two activity blocks: an art activity, and homework help/tribes times.
Wildarts Participants are sorted by age into color-named groups. Each group follows a weekly schedule with art activities that rotate daily. First through 5th grade have a homework block, while Kindergarten has a Social-Emotional Learning block we call Tribes Times. You can find our group schedules below!
Dismissal is from 5:30-6 PM daily. If you plan to pick up your child early, please do so before 5:15 PM to help keep dismissal running smoothly. Wildarts is not able to have any children in the building after 6 p.m. It is very important that children are picked up on time. We charge a $25.00 late pick-up fee each time a child is picked up later than 6:00 PM.
Wildarts Afterschool will close in accordance with the Department of Education school and afterschool emergency closings (such as inclement weather) when ordered. Families will be notified when Wildarts Afterschool is closed due to an emergency.
